Photographer's Note

Establishment of the city is connected with the person of Piotr Włostowic, a duke of Bolesław III Wrymouth. He is considered the founder of the Church of St. Cross. In the eighties of the 12th century, in what was then the village Strzelno, a Norbertine nuns convent was founded. The monastery church originally bore the name church of St.Trinity, in later years the name was extended to St.Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Strzelno received city rights in 1231.

The 12th-century church of St Prokop, in the shape of a Roman rotunda, is considered to be one of the best preserved original churches in Poland.
